It’s Thursday again! And that means that it’s time for Thankful Thursday … when I take some time to stop and reflect on all my blessings … so many things for which I’m thankful.
I’m thankful for:
“hand-me-down” hostas … DD dug up some plants in her landscaping and can’t use them … so she’s given them to me. I have a spot under our deck where grass just will not grow … a shady spot, so it’ll be perfect for these hostas. Some day I’d like to put in some landscaping all along the back of our house … and these hostas will be a good start.
being able to avoid a “run-in” with some bees that my working in the yard (planting the hostas) stirred up. I’m quite allergic to bee/wasp stings, so I was quite concerned about these bees. DH will have to go out and see if there’s a nest … we have a garden storage chest next to where I planted the hostas … I wonder if they’re inside that chest.
lots of T-time this past week. As I mentioned here, we had the Ts for a couple of days last week and had them here Monday and Tuesday this week. Today I accompanied DD and the Ts on a shopping trip … I had so much fun!
lovely weather. We’d been having some wacky weather lately … either 90-degree temperatures or storms. Yesterday and today, the temperatures have been simply gorgeous … warm (but NOT hot), sunny and breezy. And we have more of the same in the forecast for the next few days.
Walgreens’ Take Care Clinic. DH has been feeling under the weather for several days and hasn’t shown any sign of improvement, so he decided to go get checked out (sinus infection). I’m thankful, too, that he hasn’t shared whatever he’s got.
having 8 days off (including a weekend). It was so nice to have a whole rash of days where I could be retired again. I am back to work today … and which is a blessing too (even though I will definitely be glad when I can return to a full-time retiree).
